What is the "Kermesse"?


On May 24, 2008 the second annual kermesse will take place on the school grounds of ’Ecole l’Harmonie with the valued participation of the City of Waterloo, the Vermont Park Neighbourhood Association in addition to l’Association des francophones de Kitchener-Waterloo and Ecole l'Harmonie. A neighbourhood wide garage sale will kick-off the event at 10a.m. ( la braderie, the French equivalent of the garage sale) is another medieval tradition! The Kermesse proper begins at 11a.m. and continues to 4p.m.

There will be many games and activities for children plus a book exchange. We are happy to have initiated a collaboration with Worth a Second Look who will be donating prizes. Merguez, frites (fries) and French crepes will be offered for a minimal charge. Proceeds will go towards a community greening project at the school.

Weather"person" promises a sunny day for May 24th! Let us enjoy it; make new friends - and perhaps sign up a few more volunteers. As the saying goes: "Many hands make light work".
